OK, I'll admit that man has changed the view a bit as he has also in the next shot.
|Lake Michigan from the Mountain Dew golf course|
This shot was taken from an elevated tee on the golf course at the Homestead, Michigan's fresh water resort. That island on the horizon is South Manitou which in the Ojibwe Indian legend of the sleeping bear is one of the two cubs of Mishe Mokwa. Mishe Mokwa and her two cubs tried to swim the Lake to escape a fire. The cubs did not make and drowned. The great spirit Manitou formed the two islands North and South Manitou as the cubs' resting places. Meanwhile Mishe Mokwa became the sleeping bear dunes on the Lake Michigan shore - where she had waited for her cubs in vain..
Meanwhile nearer home it was foggy on the island of Tresco in the Scilly Isles.

Also in Tresco near the Island Hotel we could see a pile of rocks - not put there by man.
These reminded me of a rocky place in Yorkshire.

If that leaves you between a rock and a hard place I can only suggest you take a look at some more of the natural world at Carmi's thematic-photographic-198
